Duckweed: Duckweed is a small floating aquatic plant. Fish just cannot get enough of this nutritious diet. It acts as a tonic for the water and as a food for the fish. The fish consume the duckweed rapidly. It is high in protein and has vital minerals and vitamins for the fish. Provides excellent protein and fiber in the fish's diet. It is known that duckweed protein has higher concentrations of the essential amino acids, lysine and methionine, than most plant proteins and more closely resembles animal protein in that respect.
